Personally I don't like W7. Things were just fine on XP, I still don't understand why companies upgrade to W7. But it's being forced upon the employees, so no choice there. At home, happily use OSX. W7 may be good for some, or a whole lot, just not to me. The movement of the pinned shortcuts in the toolbar or whatever it's called (QuickLaunch in IE4.1SP2) drives me nuts. The icon gets expanded if the program is running, but becomes small when quitting. Right-click on that icon first gives a 3-options shortcut menu, only to become a larger shortcut menu when it has added a list of recent files for that program. Not a problem, but the initial location of the first 3-option shortcut gets bumped up a little, and the 'Exit' option gets moved. This is extremely annoying when you want to close a whole shitload of programs. That amongst other things make W7 a hassle for me to use.

That behavior is beyond comprehension to me as well. And the fact that you can rename files in the CLI with characters that are not allowed in Explorer.exe

Already answered by someone, but rename just by hitting enter. That shortcut is the shortest cut to rename a file. That's probably why it isn't even available in the contextual popup after a right-click, or a 'File/Rename... from the pulldown menu.

That wouldn't make any sense as the discussion is about OSX, not software from a different company.

The lack of color in the OS needs to be addressed ASAP.
I too want the colors back. That, and the fact that network shares in the sidebar used to auto-mount when dropping a file on the icon has stopped working, I believe with 10.6

And one in the iTunes prefs please!
It would even make the look more consistent with 3 pulldown menus and 3 checkboxes.
